Article #1 Chemical bonds are forces between valence electrons holding atoms together to form molecules. <ref> Carpi, Anthony. (2003).Chemical Bonding. Retrieved February 5, 2009, from http://www.visionlearning.com/library/module_viewer.php?mid=55 </ref>. Atoms may transfer or share electrons, and either process may provide for a stable arrangement of electrons between the atoms that result in the formation of molecules. <ref> Jones, Larry. (2007).
